Only two species of algae, Sargassum natans and S. fluitans, have an entirely pelagic lifecycle. Morphological form among both species has led. The brown alga Sargassum, or gulf-weed, belongs to the order Fucales which contains many species with vesicles or bladders for buoyancy.

The presence of pelagic Sargassum with its attendant fauna is well known in the Sargasso Sea of the Atlantic Ocean, but also occurs around Japan (Ida, Hiyama, and Kusaka, ) and in the. Floating pelagic Sargassum (or "Gulf weed") and its associated fauna have long held the fascination of biologists and physical oceanographers.

Early studies examined the distribution and life history of the weed (see Dooley, for a review). The faunal communities associated with Sargassum Cited by:   Pelagic Sargassum was collected in late summer, late winter, and early and late spring from inshore waters, the Gulf Stream and the Sargasso Sea of the Western North Atlantic Ocean.

The noncolonial macrofauna was picked from the weed samples. The 34 samples contained 67 species individuals. The Shannon-Wiener index of diversity had a mean value of ± (ts x Cited by: Sargassum. fauna as a food source.

Hydroids, part of the sessile epifauna, were considered by Morris and Mogelberg Sargassum natans and S.

fluitans are entirely pelagic, offering a pseudo-benthic structural habitat for an associated community of mobile fauna. In turn, the mobile fauna community supports foraging seabirds, fish, and turtles.

Recent satellite observations suggest Sargassum in the Sargasso Sea is seeded annually from the Gulf of Mexico. Furthermore, the Caribbean is in the midst of a. Floating mats of Sargassum macroalgae provide a model system for studying multiple aspects of animal coloration.

Inbetween May and September, there were reports of mass mortality of fauna, from Cancun to Xcalak (Supp. Fig. 2), in association with massive arrival of Sargassum spp. and the subsequent formation of should be noted, however, that these reports came mostly from tourist zones, where beach clean-up is frequent, so it is likely than the number of dead.

Sargassum was collected during the Sargasso Sea Eel Expedition in Spring On average, the morphological form typeSargassum natans (I) made up 85 % of the total wet weight of the samples.

South of the thermal front, larger amounts of weeds were observed. Here, the bladder size ofS. natans (I) was significantly smaller (surface 47±7 mm2) than in the northern part (surface: 64±15 mm2. structural complexity (i.e., Sargassum habitat). These results demonstrate that habitat architecture (i.e., spatial and structural components) of Sargassum influences habitat selection by the aforementioned fauna and further illustrate that this pelagic macroalga is an essential habitat for multiple species.

INTRODUCTION H. Massive accumulations of pelagic species of Sargassum have generated recent social, economic and ecological problems along Caribbean shores. In the Mexican Caribbean, these events have prompted the study of diverse biological and ecological aspects of these macroalgae.

However, studies on their associated biota, including Hydrozoa, remain scarce. To document these two conditions, Sargassum biomass and ecological state (C:N:P ratios) will be quantified in the field. Field surveys will measure the hio-optical (reflectance, biomass) and other properties of pelagic Sargassum as well as its surrounding water environment.

All field work under this Plan has been completed. Objectives 1. study, pertains to the identification and enumeration of larval and juvenile fishes associated with pelagic Sargassum in the northern Gulf of Mexico.

Ask the Scientists Join The Discussion What is the context of this research. There are many species of the genus Sargassum distributed in tropical and subtropical waters but only two, S.

natans and S. fluitans, have an entirely pelagic life cycle, meaning free-floating in the open ocean, and offer an ecologically-supportive structure in otherwise nutrient-poor environments.

Pelagic sargassum often forms lengthy, but relatively narrow, ribbons in and to the east of the Gulf Stream. Numerous fish and other marine species congregate in and directly under these sargassum ribbons, creating a unique and rich ecosystem that can extend to a depth of up to 30 feet.

Sargassum is a genus of brown (class Phaeophyceae) macroalgae in the order us species are distributed throughout the temperate and tropical oceans of the world, where they generally inhabit shallow water and coral reefs, and the genus is widely known for its planktonic (free-floating) species.

Most species within the class Phaeophyceae are predominantly cold-water organisms that.
